We know that child safety is of paramount importance for our customers and we often get asked which car seat can be used with a RIB Bed.
One of the main issues facing owners with RIB Beds is the height of the seat is much higher than that of a standard vehicle. Many car seats don’t have a long enough ‘leg’ to reach the floor, thus making the Isofix fittings on the bed unusuable and a seemingly unnecessary expense. However, a customer of ours has conducted extensive research and has compiled a list of car seats they own and have tried and tested* that work with a RIB Bed with slider. As RIB Beds can come with and without Isofix fittings, this list includes both seat belt fitted seats and Isofix fitted seats.
Our customer felt rear-facing for longer was the safest option, so all of these seats allow children to rear face to at least 9kg (approx 18 months). Two of the seats allow children to rear face to 18kg (approx 4 years old) and one to 25kg (approx 6 years old)
